“When you find a man

Who transforms

Every part of you


Into Poetry,

Who makes each one of your hairs

Into a poem,

When you find a man,



As I am

Of bathing and adorning you

With poetry,

I will beg you


To follow him without hesitation,

It is not important

That you belong to me or him

But that you belong to poetry.”

              • I was going to be raunchy but I’m behaving –
                I’ve reigned in my “raunch” today because it escaped yesterday : ) So today, I’ll just say,
                She’s the one you’re loving today.
